At Photonics West 2018, Ralf Daferner of SCHOTT Lighting and Imaging introduced their stabilized LED light source for in vitro diagnostic systems. This extremely flexible light source provides no interruptions or downtimes, and offers very stable output over its lifetime. Check out the video for more information.
At Photonics West 2018, Jürgen Hammerschmidt of SCHOTT Lighting and Imaging introduced an array of fiber and diffuser technologies for laser beam delivery, especially for medical device applications. Watch the video for more information about their side emitting diffusers, end emitting diffusers, radial diffusers, and emitting fiber rods.
Airlines consider lighting design an essential factor for influencing passenger comfort and enhancing onboard recognition. SCHOTT has collaborated with Lufthansa Technik to find their way for a brighter future in airline cabin interiors.
Specialty glass and lighting can help today’s diagnostic techniques to reach fast and precise results while keeping the process cost-efficient. This material is extremely versatile and pliant in sizes up to 30 micrometers. The high transparency and a low autofluorescence in substrate materials such as BOROFLOAT 33® and the new D 263® bio are taking diagnostic applications a major step forward. Flexible light guides made up of high purity PURAVIS® optical glass fibers as well as innovative light sources ensure that objects are precisely illuminated. SCHOTT also offers SCHOTT NEXTERION® substrates that are able to adhere to DNA, proteins, or cells for microarrays.
The Universal Light Guide features excellent transmission and a long lifetime, making it ideal for endoscopy and other demanding medical illumination applications. These light guides are extremely versatile and may be used with various endoscopes and light sources through the use of threaded proximal and distal end tips.
Modern laboratories rely on robust lighting systems, especially with fiber optics and various light sources, to conduct tests within clinical diagnostic instruments. SCHOTT offers components that add versatility to analytical instruments that contribute to technological advancements in diagnostics. They also offer long-term experience in the medical industry, ISO quality management, a global network of experts, and the highest level of supply reliability. By combining SCHOTT knowledge and expertise with customer ideas, innovative products are derived on a complete optical design analysis.
